As I made my daily browse through my favorite design blogs today, I was proud to see that Metropolis Mag’s POV blog’s first two articles have MN connections!
The new book on Public Interest Design internships, ‘Bridging the Gap’ , is reviewed by John Cary; its an excellently accurate review as well, from what I can tell being almost through my recently received copy. MN Connection: the University of Minnesota College of Design’s very own dean, Thomas Fisher, is one of the 14 contributors to the book.

Second, a post about Studio Dror. MN Connection U of M’s College of Design has hosted Dror Benshetrit as a Spring graduate module instructor in past years and will electronically-hosting him as an instructor this next spring term 2012. The module gives students a hands on opportunity to do similar work to what is highlighted in the Metropolis article. (http://www.metropolismag.com/pov/20111107/together-apart-designing-with-tension)
